Over the weekend, David K. Clements, a business law professor at New Mexico State University (NMSU) and former candidate for U.S. Senate in 2014, broke his silence on a left-wing letter the University President, John D. Floros, was disseminating.
Clements, who described himself as a “NeverTrumper,” said he did not vote for Trump or Clinton in 2016, but he did vote for the 45th President in 2020.
In the video, he describes the double-standards he sees reeking from the left as they work to discredit and lie about the protesters who entered the U.S. Capitol on January 6th, interrupting a joint session of Congress as they prepared to vote on certification of the allegedly fraudulent presidential election.
“I don’t like making these type[s] of videos. I like my privacy. I don’t like confrontation, but I feel compelled to respond to an email that was sent yesterday by the President of the University because I feel someone needs to speak up for a large segment of the University that is silent,” said Clements. He added, “I hope to give you an idea of what a Trump voter might look like because right now, I’m seeing all kinds of things being sent through social media online that has equated Trump voters as ‘traitors,’ as ‘treasonous scum,’ as ‘racist.’”
“75 million people–at least–voted for President Trump,” Clements noted. He mentioned one of these liberals dehumanizing Trump voters, state Rep. Liz Thomson (D-Albuquerque), who wrote on her Twitter account that Trump voters should be “forever branded with a Scarlet S for seditionist.” The Piñon Post previously reported on this statement by Thomson.
He then read from the letter NMSU President Floros penned.
“Wednesday was a scary and difficult day. The heart of our democratic institutions, in the building that symbolizes freedom and democratic ideals around the world, was brutally attacked by an angry mob incited by a group of demagogues claiming to represent ‘true’ American values.” wrote Floros in the letter.
Clements opined, “Let me stop right there. Our cities were on fire… Kenosha, Wisconsin, was on fire. Parts of Minneapolis were burned to the ground. Courthouses were set on fire, police precincts were destroyed. I never got an email from the president condemning mob violence that was perpetrated by Antifa or Black Lives Matter, but we get this now. Hundreds of millions of dollars in damage and we are told time and time again that ‘riots are the voice of the unheard.’”
Clements added how he was “offended that this is the email you’re going to send to faculty when you have been largely silent while cities have burned–people have lost their businesses, homes.”
He went on to go through the rest of the NMSU president’s letter and explained that when he ran for U.S. Senate, he dealt with people who tried to push him around. He said, “I don’t have tolerance for bullies,” regarding a lawsuit one of his opponents filed against him, and he got dismissed with prejudice.
